on a well lit warm window sill is your best option. uless it gets really sunny then a less bright one. :o) or a heated greenhouse if you have one. and welcome to goy.
if you can take cuttings they root well in water. but take a non flowering shoot. when you have a good root system pot them up.

How do you find a non-flowering shoot for a cutting? They are still covered in flowers!
